New Years On Mindoro Island!

Hey readers – me, Joyette and part of her family traveled to Mindoro Island to celebrate new years as well to get in some mountain bike ridding in a new location near Mamburao and Paluan!

The welcoming view once we got off the "RORO" ferry boat!

Joyette's family owns a very nice 'cottage-house' on a large piece of land!

We where shown around my the local bike group in Mambuaro!

It was all pretty casual ridding for me and Joyette!

The power-lines shown here on the left-hand side where the latest addition to this desolate region where "Tito Plops" was one of the big players! As you can see, these are roads that will eventually be paved down the road!

We rode along side countless rice fields!

We also passed by this nice lap pool in the middle of no-where!

Joyette ridding over a suspension bridge!

The bike group @ our breakfast stop!

We had a coffee and pandesal @ this beautiful resort in the middle of now-where!

This beach just went on fore-ever along the coast-line!

Our guide here Tito Plops on his first MTB ride in 1 month and first ever on a 29er!

This big here was reluctant to follow his owner cause he new he would be turned into Lechon!

Later in our ride with stopped near a 'sari-sari' store where the 'Lechon-process' was going to plan!

Ridding inside an old river bed!

Ridding through corn fields!

The step uphill road going towards the wind-mill!

The view from the summit is worth the effort!


The view as we head back down!

A solid ride requires a solid snack!
